The fact that it did not cost me anything out of pocket was great. The agents met my requirements as having experience in my local area and relatively low costs. Quite frankly they were all qualified. Thanks for your timely and efficient service.

I had never sold a house and didn't know any Realtors when I came across HomeLight. What blessing it was! I'm genuinely happy with the entire experience and would recommend HomeLight to anyone.
